OPIC is the U.S. Government’s development finance institution. It mobilizes private capital to help solve critical development challenges and in doing so, advances U.S. foreign policy. Because OPIC works with the U.S. private sector, it helps U.S. businesses gain footholds in emerging markets, catalyzing revenues, jobs and growth opportunities both at home and abroad. OPIC achieves its mission by providing investors with financing, guarantees, political risk insurance, and support for private equity investment funds. Established as an agency of the U.S. Government in 1971, OPIC operates on a self-sustaining basis at no net cost to American taxpayers.
With the signing of the BUILD Act into law, the agency will take on within the next year new authorities and become the U.S. International Development Finance Corporation.
The Office of External Affairs (OEA) is OPIC’s first line of communication with the public. OEA is tasked with raising awareness of how the agency can support private sector investment and development in emerging markets.
